Arts Canteen presents
AWAN: Juliana Yazbeck SunGod Album Launch
Thursday 8 March
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
In a nutshell
Lebanese singer-songwriter Juliana Yazbeck performs and launches her debut album SUNGOD / .بعل
Lebanese artist Juliana Yazbeck emerged on the London music scene in 2016 and has since carved a solid identity and signature sound, fusing Lebanese aural traditions with soul and hip hop poetry. Her debut album SUNGOD / بعل takes us deeper inwards, introducing atmospheric electronic minimalism to the mix. The album is a collaboration with Palestinian-Jordanian producer El-Jehaz and features artists such as Walaa Sbait on tabl and Alexis Kraniou on guitar, among others.
SUNGOD /بعل is an equal blend of English and Arabic lyrics, as Juliana weaves her poetry into a forgotten world that calls on the Old Gods as well as the new, in a journey to rediscover our identity before Westernisation: as women, as Arabs, and as autonomous peoples.
What to Expect
Juliana Yazbeck will perform the entire album in a live world premiere, backed by a three-piece band featuring acoustic instruments as well as electronic sounds, with guest appearances. The show will be followed by CD signing, where the audience will have the chance to have a one-on-one chat with the artists, and the album will officially go on sale at the merchandise table.
